The Security Operations Center, or SOC, is often the first solution that comes to the mind of Security leaders when they think of Cyber Security. It’s a command center, where Security Analyst supervise environments and solve any challenges posed by threats. With the rise of cloud-native Digital transformation and Internet of Everything, there is massive acceleration seen in the rate of change of systems and applications in the DevOps movement. Considering the current Covid times, all of the same security leaders are asking themselves whether the days of the erstwhile SOC are numbered or is this now a legacy system?
But there’s a third option: modernizing and virtualizing your SOC.
In our Hyper-Connected World of Internet, things and us, there is an exponential increase in the number of unknown advanced persistent cyberattacks and incidents per year. Also, there is continuous decrease in the time available to respond to these incidents and breaches. Thus, organizations are struggling to maintain their cyber defense posture to ensure threats are kept at bay.
Looking back, there have been many more of unknown targeted advanced cyber-attacks like Target, Sony, RSA, eBay, Anthem, US Military, Heartland, Dropbox, JPMC, Home Depot, LinkedIn, Adobe, NSA, Honda, Garmin, and thousands of others, who will remain unnamed. However, many have invested in millions in cyber security programs including SOC with hundreds of experts, but it is obvious that “Money doesn’t buy Cyber Security anymore”.
The need for Active Cyber Defense Resiliency
Our Digital transformation is about computerizing everything with a great advantage that we can see today and while internet gets embedded in every form of our life, we will realize the benefits of that in coming years. In this era, we are using Robotics with autonomous algorithms in every intelligent software, as well as drones combining IoT, Mobility and Robotics techniques in every form of our business and life. We are now a component in many of these “Internet + everything”. With this realization in Digital Era, we need a paradigm shift in Cyber Security Defense Approach.
In our vision of Active Cyber Defense Resiliency Approach, we require a system to identify, detect, protect, investigate, hunt, respond and remediate “the Internet + Things + us” in real-time. This is what I define as key pillars for Active CDR in order to Save “Internet + Everything.”
LTI has been constantly investing on building Next-Gen Active CDR solutions and services to serve customers across all Industry verticals with this vision of “Click to Save Internet + Everything.”
